Analogy for These Times

If the ship carrying everybody hits the inevitable iceberg called "Greed," resulting in a large gash that quickly causes the ship to list and to begin to sink while under the control of a crew that, among numerous other ruinous acts, had earlier thrown all the lifeboats overboard with the argument that they were just taking up space and were no longer needed, it makes no sense that after their inattention and wrongheadedness caused the collision and they were thereupon replaced with a new crew, they should then spend all their time attacking the members of that new crew while it is working feverishly and constantly to seal off the gash and so prevent everybody from going down with the ship, including that diabolic old crew, which is so hopelessly consumed with a whole raft of resentments that they can think of nothing else, not least of which is their bitter but carefully unenunciated disapproval of the persuasion of the new captain's father.
